HELLO MY SWEET FRIENDS
Today I want to talk about a MAGICAL and BEAUTIFUL place I got the chance to visit: the African country SEYCHELLES!
And it is amazing that we even ended up visiting, because the plan was to stay in Ethiopia where we were making videos then, but the Wi-fi was poo no matter what we did. So we looked for direct flights out, and we found the Seychelles!
We had no regrets and loved it! I think they loved us too 😛 cause we even got interviewed in the papers there.
If you love nature, undiscovered places, and want to visit a different side of Africa, read this article for a better idea on what to know about this tiny island country and what to do there.
The Seychelles is a tiny…
… tiny African country to the east of Kenya.
And it’s completely VISA-FREE which means it doesn’t matter what country you’re from, you’re allowed to visit the Seychelles!
It’s also known for amazing beaches, with HUGE boulders, beautiful waters and powdery sand. It feels like real paradise.
WHAT TO DO IN THE SEYCHELLES?
1) Help save the earth by buying coral
We found that the Marine Conservation Society Seychelles (MCSS) lets you ADOPT coral! and it’s really easy. You can choose your own coral from their kiosk and pay for it with a small donation.
Then the volunteers will head under the sea and plant your coral for you. You even get a certificate to show you that you own the coral. How cool is that?
Here’s the video about this: We killed the ocean
2) Curieuse Island – Small island with giant turtles
This little island off the coast of the mainland has many GIANT tortoise population. I really wish we had a chance to go there and see the friendly tortoise giants, but we were too busy. 🙁
I know I will go there when I return to the Seychelles though!
3) Experience the culture where the MEN cook for you
Seychelles has a matriarchal society, so it’s common to see men cooking in the kitchen while women handle other household chores.
Idk about you but I think it’s only fair for housework to be divided between men and women!
You can go experience this for yourself if you do a homestay or stay in a hosted AirBnb, probably! P.S. If you’re going to get an AirBnb (and it’s your first time), you can use my voucher for a discount!
We have a video on this too, check it out: Where MEN cook!
4) GET MARRIED, APPARENTLY!
We found that it’s really easy to get married in the Seychelles. You just need your passport and your birth certificate, and it takes only 5 days to process!
One of our girls in my Facebook group, Girls Gone Global, got married there (wedding photography, cake and all, for just $3000.)
Also watch the video Nas made about this: How we got MARRIED!
WHERE TO STAY IN THE SEYCHELLES?
Okay so this is one of my favourite parts simply because the hotel I stayed in was AMAZING. We were hosted by Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa, which has some of the friendliest staff (like in all other Hilton hotels we’ve been to) and some of the most beautiful rooms I’ve stayed in.
I mean, LOOK AT IT.
It’s BEAUTIFUL, it’s HUGE.
And it has an INFINITY POOL FACING THE SEA.
Which means you get to chill with snacks and drinks and just ENJOY THE VIBES
The villas cost under 600 euros per night. It’s a lot, but worth splurging on for an anniversary or special night!
And that’s my guide to the Seychelles! Leave me a comment if you have any questions and I hope you’ll visit too! 💕
